The stadium is located on the Airport West site that is located to the west of San Jose International Airport.Avaya Stadium officially opened for business on February 27, 2015 and has a capacity of approximately 18,000. It is sponsored by Avaya, headquartered in nearby Santa Clara. The stadium features a canopy roof and the steepest-raked seating in Major League Soccer to provide a better view. Additionally, the area behind the northeast goal houses the largest outdoor bar in North America, a two-acre fan zone and a double-sided video scoreboard. The suites and club seats are located at field level. The stadium is part of a mixed use residential, retail, R&D and hotel development.The stadium was constructed privately with no public money provided by the city of San Jose. Additionally, Lewis Wolff, owner of the San Jose Earthquakes, offered to pay for the maintenance of the stadium for a 55-year time span. The team organization initially delayed the completion date to the middle of the 2014 MLS season, but later delayed it again to the 2015 season. The seat pattern includes three different shades of blue as well as a smattering of red seats to pay homage to the club’s NASL history. Additionally, the pattern contains the message "Go EQ" written in binary.

  • Weather was great. Can see very well from the seats. Great food selection. Luckily not very expensive too. Stores has nice soccer items, tees etc. Overall, everyone had wonderful time  more »
  • The stadium is immediately adjacent to the San Jose airport complex so it can get noisy as planes come and go. Stadium parking was convenient and cost $15. Seats had backs, and the restrooms were in g...  more »

  • We enjoy this place very much. We arrived just on time and got very lucky, someone gave us free tickets. The games not so good, but the environment was great. Make sure you bring the necessary to fight the cold wind (we were not, we were freezing). A lot of options for food, snacks and drinks. Be prepared for a long wait while trying to leave.
  • This stadium is awesome! The food truck lineup is great and all other food around the stadium is fantastic. There is a concession stand that has a huge amount of beer choices, and an awesome long bar by one end of the field. Everything is still new and in great condition. I love coming to games here. Go Earthquakes
  • On the way in, I thought nothing was moving on the west side of the stadium because people were getting food, so I went around the east side. As I tried to get back out on the west, I realized there is no separate exit for the players, so the staff had completely shut down foot traffic and I had to go back 3/4 of the stadium to get out. It was irritating that they couldn't plan a safe player-fan interaction that also allows foot traffic to enter and exit the stadium on the west. Or at least there was no one to direct flow of traffic and we were told "you just have to wait", but no estimate how long. Parking is $20, no nearby free parking, and traffic is a mess, it resembled a parking lot on Coleman Ave. The stadium is nice and I enjoyed watching planes land behind the video display, but the fun I had in the stadium was tinged with the irritation of getting in and out.
  • Beautiful stadium. We parked our car in the platinum lot and had no issues. The stadium is extremely clean and the employees very friendly and helpful. The fans are enthusiastic but not crazy. There are food trucks available but fyi if you go during halftime the lines can be crazy long. There's also the regular consession stands to buy your standard stadium food and there are several full bars to get whatever drink you'd like. Go Quakes!
  • Great family friendly venue. You're free to roam around where you like at the many food stalls and bars around. But really there isn't a bad seat in the stadium. A refreshing experience for a soccer game compared to in Britain where alcohol is banned from the stands and fans are angry, frustrated men. Here there is a fun atmosphere and the home side have a lively support group which hammer their drums over what is usually a quiet crowd. If the game is boring there's a great view of San Josè airport. Drinks are pricey $8 for a bottle of water.. cheers!
